I prefer rebol for much of what I do - but read on:
Not meant to be an argument but a statement of policy. My
company's mission statement is about open source. Based on the
more proprietory nature of the vid dialect, I have never used
rebol/view. in the 10 years that I have been programming in
rebol. Just rebol/core. My partner and I have agreed that we will
use open source libraries for GUI applications. Therefore, it is
in our agreement that he (primarily a perl programmer) and I
TKinter). And we've done precious little of that since we have
we need to do for our customers, in terms of interfaces.
I have no argument with the rebol components that are closed
source. That is Carl Sassenrath's Business plan :) and that's his
business. But my business is with Open Source as much as is
possible. I can recall some pretty spirited ( :) but never
mean-spirited) exchanges on the topic of Open Source here on this
ML. I'm just happy to have rebol for the uses that I put it to.
It is a thing of beauty.
